Venom radio and venom television
I'm afraid of everyone, I'm afraid of everyone
Lay the young blue bodies with the old red violets
I'm afraid of everyone, I'm afraid of everyone

With my kid on my shoulders I try
Not to hurt anybody I like
But I don't have the drugs to sort
I don't have the drugs to sort it out, sort it out

I defend my family with my orange umbrella
I'm afraid of everyone, I'm afraid of everyone
With my shiny new star spangled tennis shoes on
I'm afraid of everyone, I'm afraid of everyone

With my kid on my shoulders I try
Not to hurt anybody I like
But I don't have the drugs to sort
I don't have the drugs to sort it out, sort it out
But I don't have the drugs to sort
I don't have the drugs to sort it out, sort it out

Your voice has stolen my soul, soul, soul
Your voice has stolen my soul, soul, soul
Your voice has stolen my soul, soul, soul
Your voice has stolen my soul, soul, soul

Your voice has stolen my soul, soul, soul, soul
Your voice has stolen my soul, soul, soul, soul
Your voice has stolen my soul, soul, soul, soul
Soul, soul, soul, soul, soul, soul, soul, soul, soul, soul

Your voice has stolen my soul, soul, soul, soul
Your voice has stolen my soul, soul, soul, soul
Your voice has stolen my soul, soul, soul, soul
Soul, soul, soul, soul, soul, soul, soul
